Service Coordination Tool Templates (SCTT) Online Learning Module
The SCTT Online Learning Module is being developed by the department to support the implementation of the SCTT 2012 suite of templates. The SCTT Online Learning Module will be released by June 2013 to align with the inclusion of SCTT 2012 into Client Information Management Systems.
The SCTT Online Learning Module will provide a platform for organisations to train their existing and new staff in the use of the SCTT 2012 suite of templates. This will allow for a standardised SCTT training across the state. SCTT training can therefore be targeted to align with the release of SCTT 2012 in an organisations software application so that SCTT training is available as SCTT 2012 becomes available to users.
